Pax on board:
The crew departed Montreal-Saint-Hubert Airport on a training mission. While cruising at low altitude, the airplane stalled and crashed in a wooded area, bursting into flames. The wreckage was found near Lac des Chats. All three occupants were killed.
It was determined that the pilot-in-command failed to maintain sufficient airspeed while manoeuvring at low level, resulting in an aerodynamic stall.
